    In other words, *their evaluation on those forms were an outright lie,* and that when they decide to default on the loan they simply create a new loyalty program (probably carrying over the customer data so customers don't get angry when all their points are gone), renegotiate with their partners, and leave the bank with a register of customers and their arbitrary point-value which the bank can't do anything with (there is noone accepting those points for services). And the only money the bank will be able to get, is whatever points that happen to be bought by the prior partners before they catch up and cancel the partnership (or worst case, if there are contracts with a set period specified, move as many customers as they can to other credit card plans until the contract expires). Did I get that right?

    For a very, very long time, places in the equator line were as developed or even more than European ones. In the late medieval, incas and Aztecs were thriving in the Americas and very close to Equador. In Africa, the Empire of Mali was a great comercial empire, with a educated population a large cities, the same in Zimbabwe. So, there was no gap before colonialism, only after.

    Am I the only one thinking that Vail is going to need to do something about the energy consumption and carbon footprint of these mega-resorts if they want to protect their future? Besides being a huge monopoly and heavily invested in company, they lean on their employees to pledge money towards "POW" (Protect Our Winters) from their checks... but can't invest in Protecting Winters themselves? What gives?

    Every model of emissions attributed to EV production that I’ve looked at has been so flawed that I can only suspect that the flaws are intentional. There are two mistakes that I’ve seen in every model. Lithium brine is a low emissions lithium extraction method. Until recently, half of the world’s lithium production comes from brine extraction. Lithium brine also makes up the lion’s share of proven lithium reserves, meaning that emissions will not linearly grow with substantially increased lithium production. Secondly, the biggest modeling mistake that I see is that all emissions from rock mining are attributed to the mine’s lithium production. Hard rock mines that produce lithium also produce tin, aluminum, gemstones and other metals and minerals. It’s deceptive to attribute all emissions from a mine to lithium alone. There is significant carbon and ecological cost to lithium mining, but not even well meaning publications can be trusted to correctly discuss and model these costs.

    Battery EV's will not win... I believe hydrogen is the answer and once they work out and improve the efficiency of the production and consumption of hydrogen, and work out on-site production so we don't have to transport it, hydrogen EV's will win. It's just a matter of time. If the same level of effort had been put into hydrogen EV's as was battery EV's, we'd have a lot more if not equal amounts of HEV's on the road now as we do BEV's, possibly even more because it is has the potentially of being generally more convenient (imagine if you can produce your own hydrogen and refuel your HEV car in your garage cheaply and easily). For now, cheap BEV's is an acceptable stopgap if it is practical for you.

    This excellent piece is worthy of more visibility, as it points to both the long term value of sustainable energy, while making it clear the transition requires a lot of infrastructure change and time. I also like that you touched on the complexity of trade-offs around water impoundments: great for storage of water and indirectly, energy, but at the expense of healthy land, flora, and fauna. These are complex problems which under any policy will continually need tough management and optimization.

    Wendover AKA Sam Derby, you're clearly not an economist. Simply changing the law to allow everyone who wants to immigrate to the US to do so would completely wreak havoc on the US economy, not to mention we wouldn't even have the resources to process the sheer amount of people that would apply.

    The reason immigration is easier between US and Canada is because there is not a lot of immigration, period. If it was much higher, it would take longer and both countries would impose restrictions because mass migrations aren't a good thing either. I hoped you'd talk about the consequences of not securing the border and making immigration easier between the US and Mexico. The consequences that arise from restricting immigration vs the consequences of unchecked mass migration.
